We offer our clients a service that aims to help you plan, build and maintain your railway infrastructure. We have the skills and experience to deliver multidisciplinary design and build projects.

Charles Brand can trace its railway heritage over 140 years to 1870 in Aberdeenshire, Scotland.
We plan, integrate and deliver design and construction projects, working with other Specialist partners as necessary to complement our own professional services.
We have worked for a range of clients, public and private highway / railway bridge owners, and have experience of working with on design and build projects where programme, constructability and economy of design are all paramount. Our services cover the complete range of structures from footbridges to multi-span bridges using a variety of construction materials.
We work through both partnering agreements and traditional contracts. We have experience of working on live railways, and recognise that the ‘possession times’ available to work on a live railway are the most restricted of the resources to be managed in order to deliver projects to time, within specification and on budget.
Safety is key to all of our business activities. Nothing is more important to us than the operational safety of the service we supply, and the health and safety of our people. Quality of service is the cornerstone of the long-term relationships that we seek to create with our customers.
The competence of our people, management systems, and investment in training underpins our values. We believe in developing our people and train extensively at all levels.
